Prevention for Child Obesity

Childhood obesity refers to children and adolescents from 6 to 17 years of age who are extremely overweight based on standard growth charts. Currently, statistics show that twelve percent of American parents consider their child obese. This is a rather startling fact that should be given more interest and notice by the public. Parents should be a lot more concerned about their child’s weight and their eating habits. Early detection and intervention would greatly help on battling with obesity.

Obesity among children and adolescents is a very serious issue that has a lot of medical and social effects that could probably persist into adulthood. Instigating prevention programs and an improved perception of treatments available for youngsters is crucial in the prevention for child obesity.

Several health professionals and educators are involved in developing prevention for child obesity programs. Although critical measures should be done in the treatment of obesity among children, it should not dictate the overall picture of the child’s health plan. There are many vital aspects of child health, including immunity, brain function, social support, emotional development and growth. Maintaining the child’s ideal weight is only one of the aspects of his/her wellbeing.

Prevention for child obesity programs and centers for obesity prevention are specifically designed to address weight issues among children. However, it should be handled with a certain degree of sensitivity and proper planning. Often, prevention for child obesity programs yield potentially dangerous results.

Most adults have a wrong attitude towards dieting, which they could unintentionally pass on to their children. Before embarking on any prevention for child obesity programs, parents need expert medical guidance. Inadvertent transfer of information, wrong advice and misconception could possibly stigmatize overweight children. This would mean a much bigger problem to deal with in the long run.

Child obesity is a multi-faceted problem that requires the commitment of both parents and the child. When left untreated, is a very real health menace that could cause the development of some diseases. This includes cardiovascular complications, hypertension, and some types of cancer.

This is why it is highly important for parents to create a healthy eating environment for their children. Cultivating the proper eating attitude and providing health information that your child can easily understand would greatly help in the rehabilitation of his/her eating habits. The guidance of a nutritionists or a health expert should also be seek out to ensure that proper health guidelines are followed at all times.

After all,

the most important action

for the treatment of child obesity

is prevention.

Taking a Step in

                          Preventing Child Obesity

As incidences of child obesity continue to rise, the best defence is prevention. At this point, many would already be battling the condition. No matter which stage you’re at, perhaps the simple approach would do you good.  

The following are strategies for the prevention of child obesity and bringing a child down to a healthy weight.

 

  1. Give children opportunities and encourage them to be involved in physical activities such as playing sports, hiking, dancing or even martial arts. It’s also important that parents are involved on certain times while still allowing their children to accomplish tasks on their own and with a peer group. This allows interaction that children need to learn from. Remember that low physical activity is one of the causes of child obesity. So encourage exercises to at least 20 to 30 minutes a day.
  2. A simple and very effective strategy in the prevention of child obesity and weight loss is walking and cycling. Encourage walking or biking to school or other near destinations instead of driving a short distance. Families might enjoy nightly walks around the neighbourhood or brisk walks towards the park.
  3. Limit the time in front of the television to an hour a day. This is not only prevention of child obesity, but it is also for the good of a child’s mental health.
  4. Choose a sensible diet. Encourage children to eat fresh fruits, vegetables whole grains and other low-fat foods. Do not allow fast food, high-calorie and high fat meals or even snacks. Of course, the occasional treat is fine. Just don’t do it every day.
  5. Keep track of the child’s height and weight in order to be able to compare them with normal and healthy measurements.

Keep in mind that the best approach to prevention of child obesity is to treat it as a health condition. Emphasize fitness and not weight and especially not the matter of appearance. Be careful or you might cause it instead of achieving the prevention of child obesity.

Also, parents should be a good role model. The children need to see the habits you inculcate. It also produces better results when parents do these with their children. Think of it as a bonding exercise.

Perhaps this is a major lifestyle shift for many but hopefully you’ll see that the good outweighs the bad. The benefits of a sound mind and body can not equate to binge eating and idleness. The body wasn’t made for that. It was made to walk on the earth, feel the cool morning breeze, the sand in between your toes, watch the sunset and savour the sweet blessings of good fresh food. You have to believe in the prevention of child obesity in order for it to work. Have faith in it and in yourself.

Imagine if the rest of world were doing this, then

obesity would not be such a threat.

 

Your Obese Child –

                     Obesity Can Kill Them Young

Unfortunately yes, dying young is a major health problem of an obese child. In fact this is the first generation in a long time, where statistically speaking the chances of children dying before their parents is rising.

It is very sad particularly when it is totally avoidable through education, a decent diet and exercise.

 

Does that mean that the parents are at fault if their child is obese? No of course not, life is never that simple. There could be an underlying medical reason why the child is overweight but in general it comes down to a poor understanding of basic home economics. 

People lack the knowledge required to ensure that their families are eating healthy food.

 

This is not just because of a lack of education but in some cases it is a lack of cash as well. Decent food can be more expensive.  

A huge amount of money spent by various food retailers on marketing to convince us that certain foods are good for us. For example the fast food restaurants introducing bags of salad in a bid to convince us that eating in their establishment was healthy. 

 

With so much miss-information being given out by the media and advertising, why are we surprised that childhood rates of diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and other illnesses are increasing? 

So what can we do? We can all start by re-educating ourselves and our families. Work on what happens in your own home first before you try and take on the world. Teach your children the basics of good food nutrition.

You can borrow or buy plenty of books on the subject from your local bookstore or library. Your medical clinic may employ a dietician who can help you to draw up a healthy menu for your family.

 

Start by ditching all the processed food you can. If you can't give your family a home cooked meal every evening, at least aim to do it on five out of the seven nights.  Insist your kids eat their dinner around a table perhaps while discussing their day with you and their siblings. 

Turn off the TV or the computer and enjoy an old-fashioned healthy meal.

 

Every meal you eat should include some vegetables or fruit, ideally the former. We all know we should be eating five different types of fruit or vegetables a day.  Try and get into the habit of doing this.  It isn't going to be easy as your kids may not like vegetables but I am sure there are ways and means you can adopt to fool them. You can try giving them grated raw carrot if they hate cooked ones.  Blend up vegetables and hide them in the pasta sauce. 

Try combining fruit and vegetables in homemade juices.  

Get your kids involved in preparing the dinner as they are more likely to eat the food afterwards. 

As well as eating more healthy foods, you need to get your children outdoors doing physical activities. Try walking to school if possible and going to the park or playground as a matter of routine rather than a one-off treat. 

Small changes will lead to bigger ones.

Your child's future is at stake.

It is up to you to help them avoid

suffering the health problem

of an obese child.
